Acute hematogenous periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) is defined in the literature as infection diagnosed and treated within 2 to 4 weeks from the onset of symptoms. In total hip and knee arthroplasty, irrigation and debridement (I&D) and polyethylene exchange with component retention has been studied extensively. However, there is minimal literature evaluating this treatment method for PJI in total ankle arthroplasty (TAA). The purpose of this study was to evaluate both the clinical and patient-reported outcomes and survivorship of TAA acute hematogenous PJIs treated with I&D and polyethylene exchange.
